Approximately 84% of all the world’s rough diamonds pass through Antwerp. The city is known as the diamond capital of the world.

Belgium, known officially as The Kingdom of Belgium, is a land of vibrant culture and rich history. The country is home to more than 11.5 million people and is composed of three distinct regions. The three main regions of Belgium are the Flemish Region in the north, the Walloon Region in the south, and the Brussels-Capital Region. Aside from being the capital of Belgium, Brussels is also the country's smallest, most densely populated, and richest region (GDP per capita).

While the majority of Belgian residents speak Dutch, portions of the population also speak French and German. This linguistic diversity has given rise to incredible artistic advancements and a highly-complicated system of government. Belgium is governed by a total of six distinct federal, regional, and community-based governments.

Bordered by France, Germany, Luxemburg, and the Netherlands, Belgium is composed of three distinct geographical regions. The coastal plain region stretches across the northwestern portion of the country, while the center of the country is known as the central plateau. The final region of Belgium, the Ardennes uplands, lies in the southeast and is composed of extensive forests and rolling hills.

Aside from the snacks included in your box, Belgium is known for its beer, chocolate, waffles, and French fries. Belgium is also known worldwide for its athletic accomplishments, notably in the FIFA World Cup and the Tour de France.

Belgian Waffles

The Belgian waffle, revered for its thick appearance and deep, syrup-destined pools, was initially called the Brussels waffle when it first appeared at the 1958 Brussels World Fair. Four years later, stamped with a new name that resonated with geographically challenged Americans, the Belgian waffle traveled to Seattle, Washington, and was showcased at the Century 21 Exposition. The Belgian waffle was first sold topped with strawberries and whipped cream at this exposition. Following the show, the Belgian waffle became a popular breakfast treat at diners around the country.
